You can sit on the velvet sectional where the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” stars perched during their drama-filled trip to Aspen, CO.
The home where some of the cast members stayed is available for rent, but be prepared to pay big-time for the privilege.
“It is one of the most exclusive homes in Aspen and is in a beautiful location that is easily accessible to the town and also the trail system,” says Heather Sinclair, managing partner of The Agency, the company renting out the property for an astronomical $12,500 per night, or $200,000 a month.
“It was inspired by a luxury hotel in Switzerland, so the house itself is very unique in the sense that it is custom from start to finish. Everything was custom-made for this property,” she says.
The homeowner does use the six-bedroom, eight-bath retreat, but it is often rented out to people looking for a great mountain getaway. There’s sleeping space for 14 people.
The show producers came calling a while back when they were looking for a suitable vacation rental for the “Real Housewives” cast, Sinclair explains.
“They tried to do their Aspen trip a year ago, and with COVID, they just couldn’t do it. I recommended this particular property to them from Day One, and it was the favorite all along.”
The 6,750-square-foot residence is close to the mountain condo that cast member Kyle Richards recently sold.
On the “Real Housewives” trip, Erika Jayne, Lisa Rinna, and Kathy Hilton stayed with Richards at her Aspen getaway.
Since there wasn’t enough room at Richards’ residence, Dorit Kemsley, Garcelle Beauvais, Sutton Stracke, Crystal Kung Minkoff, and Sheree Zampino stayed at the rental. The episodes were taped in January.
“It was a no-brainer. I mean, this was meant to be filmed for the ‘Real Housewives.’ It’s just a very sexy Aspen house,” Sinclair says. “There’s nothing like it, and it photographs very well.”
An elevator connects all three levels, and the open layout features high ceilings and plenty of windows to take in the mountain views.
“It has great spaces for entertaining. The kitchen is nice and big. The living room has a custom velvet sectional. The bar was in quite a few scenes, and it has the word ‘Aspen’ in the background. You could be in a lodge, or you could be in a nightclub. It looks very private and exclusive,” Sinclair says.
“The ideal renter for this property is someone who loves Aspen and appreciates the style and design of the home,” Sinclair. Each bedroom has a bathroom, so guests will have a hotel-like experience.
Sinclair says she tuned in to the reality show’s episodes that were shot in Aspen.
“It’s all about the house,” Sinclair says of the reality show’s episodes that were shot in Aspen. “The house is the star of the show. I think that the house is built for entertaining, and it’s clear the ladies really enjoyed their time there.”
And though there was drama during their trip, it wasn’t the house’s fault.
“The house didn’t cause the drama,” Sinclair says. “It’s an amazing backdrop, unlike anything else in Aspen.”
So, the moral of the story: If you’re going to have an epic fight with your friends, you might as well do it in a snazzy space.
Lisa Hatem is the listing agent for the property. And Richards’ husband, Mauricio Umansky, is the founder and CEO of The Agency.
